carrots are like money in the bank. Dried carrots keep well and reconstitute nicely for use in breads, salads,
and soups. To dry raw carrots: Slice washed, tender carrots 1/8 to 1/4-inch
thick or coarsely shred or grate them. Toss with some lemon juice. Arrange
on dryer racks and dry until crisp.
To dry cooked carrots (which keep their color better): Select crisp,
tender carrots. Trim the green tops, leaving a 1/2-inch tip. Steam until
cooked through,but not mushy -- about 20 minutes, depending on size. Trim
off the tails, the crowns, and the green tops. Slice 1/8-inch thick or
shred. Dry until crisp. Cool and store.
The foundation for juiced recipes, carrot juice mixes well with many
fruits and can be added to soups, salad dressings, and muffins.
